1 Russian Journal of Herpetology Vol. 18, No. 4, 2011, pp A NEW SPECIES OF Chiromantis PETERS 1854 (ANURA: RHACOPHORIDAE) FROM PERLIS STATE PARK IN EXTREME NORTHERN PENINSULAR MALAYSIA WITH ADDITIONAL HERPETOFAUNAL RECORDS FOR THE PARK Chan Kin Onn, 1,2 L. Lee Grismer, 1,3 Shahrul Anuar, 4 Evan Quah, 4 Jesse L. Grismer, 5 Perry L. Wood Jr., 6 Mohd Abdul Muin, 7 and Norhayati Ahmad 8 Submitted October 2, Seven new species of amphibians and seven new species of reptiles are added to the herpetofauna of Perlis State Park including a new species of frog of the genus Chiromantis which is described here. The description is based on a single adult male that can be differentiated from all other Asian congeners in having dark spots on the dorsum and top of head; tympanum indistinct; dorsolateral stripe diffuse; width of third finger disc less than width of tympanum; and webbing between the third and fourth finger encompassing one-half of penultimate phalanx of third finger and reaching base of terminal phalanx of fourth finger (III IV). This discovery and the 14 new species records highlights the understudied nature of northern Peninsular Malaysia which has been comparatively unsurveyed. Keywords: Chiromantis marginis; herpetofauna; Southeast Asia; Malaysia; taxonomy. INTRODUCTION The Rhacophorid genus Chiromantis currently contains 15 species which are generally small, arboreal inhabitants of disturbed and primary forest. All are nocturnal and most active during periods of precipitation when males call for females along the edges of permanent and ephemeral bodies of water. Chiromantis is disjunctly distributed in tropical east and west Africa (Frost, 2009), northern India (Dey and Gupta, 2000; Ray, 1992), and most of Southeast Asia (Chan-ard, 2003; Grismer et al., 1 Institute for Environment and Development (LESTARI), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia Department of Biology, La Sierra University, 4500 Riverwalk Parkway, Riverside, CA , USA. 4 School of Biological Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Minden, Penang, Malaysia. 5 Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Natural History Museum & Biodiversity Research Center, University of Kansas, Dyche Hall, 1345 Jayhawk Blvd., Lawrence, KS , USA. 6 Department of Biology, Villanova University, Villanova, PA 19085, USA. 7 Centre for Drug Research, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Minden, Penang, Malaysia. 8 School of Environment and Natural Resource Sciences, Faculty of Science and Technology, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia. 2007; Norhayati et al., 2005; Orlov et al., 2002; Thy and Holden, 2008; Wilkinson et al., 2003) (Fig. 1). Asian members were previously assigned to the genus Chirixalus, which was demonstrated to be paraphyletic with respect to other rhacophorid genera (Delorme et al., 2005; Frost et al., 2006; Wilkinson, 2002). To avoid paraphyly, C. palpebralis and C. gracilipes were placed under the genus Feihyla (Frost et al., 2006) and Gracixalus (Li et al., 2008), respectively, and the remaining species were placed in the synonymy of Chiromantis. To ensure the monophyly of Chiromantis, C.romeri was then reassigned to the newly erected genus, Liuxalus (Li et al., 2008). The northern states of Perlis, Kedah and Kelantan in Peninsular Malaysia serve as the southernmost limit of numerous species that extend southward from adjacent Thailand along the Malay Peninsula. This is embodied in Perlis State Park (located within Wang Kelian, a town approximately 1 km south of the Thai border) which is the northernmost forest reserve in Peninsular Malaysia and a herpetologically diverse region with 23 documented species of amphibians and 66 species of reptiles (Chan et al., 2010). During March 2010, field work in Perlis State Park resulted in an additional 15 species of amphibians and reptiles which represent new park and state records (Tables 1 and 2), including a new species of frog which we assigned to the genus Chiromantis based on its small Folium Publishing Company

6 258 Chan Kin Onn Distribution. Chiromantis marginis is currently known only from Perlis State Park but most likely ranges throughout the lowland forests of the Nakhawan Range on the borderlands of Thailand and Malaysia with which it is continuous. Natural history. Chiromantis marginis was found at 22:30 during light precipitation while seated on the upperside of the leaf of a large-leaved plant 1.0 m above the ground near the edge of a man-made dam behind the Perlis State Park chalets. Several repeated attempts from June to September 2010 to find more specimens failed. Other species found within the vicinity of the dam were the frogs Phrynoidis aspera and Microhyla berdmorei, the lizards Draco maximus and Cnemaspis kumpoli, and the snakes Ahaetulla prasina and Boiga drapiezii. Etymology. The specific epithet is derived from the Latin noun margo which means border, in reference to the type locality of this new species in Wang Kelian, Perlis at the Thai-Malaysian border. The suffix inis is attached to denote gender which in this case is neutral. Comparisons. Chiromantis marginis can be distinguished from all other Southeast Asian congeners except C. hansenae, C. punctatus, and C. vittatus in having a white dorsolateral stripe. It differs from these three species by having a narrow, diffuse dorsolateral stripe as opposed to a wide, well defined stripe; and a smaller third toe disc that does not equal or exceed the width of the tympanum; it can be further differentiated from all other Asian Chiromantis except C. samkosensis by having more extensive webbing between the third and fourth fingers (III IV) (Fig. 2C). These and other characters are compared with other Asian Chiromantis across Table 3. DISCUSSION Chiromantis marginis is most similar to C. hansenae and C. vittatus but differs from them by having a narrow, diffuse, dorsolateral stripe, webbing between the third and fourth fingers, and having dorsal spots (Fig. 2B, D). Additionally, the only morphological differences reported to separate C. hansenae from C. vittatus are a distinct, as opposed to an indistinct tympanum (Cochran 1927), and a smaller maximum SVL in C. hansenae (Taylor 1962). However, Wilkinson et al. (2003) noted that the tympanum was indistinct in half of the C. hansenae specimens he examined. We examined 27 specimens of C. vittatus and found that only some had indistinct tympanae and thus, do not consider this character to be of diagnostic value. Taylor (1962) reported that male C. vittatus from Thailand ranged from mm in SVL and females ranged from mm. He reported male C. hansenae from Thailand to have a SVL range of mm and females to range from mm SVL. Taylor (1962), however, reported both C. hansenae and C. vittatus from the same locality in Chiang Mai (Kaeng Paeng Tao), Thailand and C. hansenae from an additional locality in Loei Province, east of Chiang Mai near the border of Laos. This is in contrast to Chan-ard (2003: pp. 144, 146) who considered these species allopatirc, reporting C. vittatus from western Thailand and C. hansenae from the east. Due to the lack of evidence supporting the separation of C. hansenae and C. vittatus and their putative sympatry in northern Thailand by Taylor (1962), we consider C. hansenae (Cochran 1927) to be a junior synonym of C. vittatus (Boulenger, 1887) as previously suggested by Stuart and Emmett (2006) and Wilkinson et al. (2002). Describing a new species based on a single specimen can be potentially problematic owing to the inability to assess the range of intrapopulational variation that could obscure the delimitation of species boundaries. However, the discrete character state of having significantly more webbing between the third and fourth toes shows no variation in any other species of Chiromantis, thus we have no scientific justification for assuming it would in C. marginis with the examination of additional specimens. Additionally, the southernmost record for C. vittatus is in the province of Kanchanaburi, Thailand (Chan-ard, 2003), more than 750 km north of Perlis State Park. Therefore no data support a hypothesis that C. marginis is conspecific with C. vittatus. Chan et al. (2009) reported 23 species of amphibians and 66 species of reptiles from Perlis State Park and adjacent areas. To this we add the following new records and their associated voucher photographs: Ingerophrynus parvus (UKMDPC , ), Kaloula baleata (UKMDPC ), Microhyla fissipes (UKMDPC ), Occidozyga martensii (UKMDPC , ), Taylorana hascheana (UKMDPC ), Chiromantis marginis sp. nov. (LSUHC 9700), Theloderma licin (UKMDPC , ), Acanthosaura cf. crucigera (LSUHC ), Ahaetulla fasciolata (UKMDPC ), Gonyosoma oxycephalum (UKMDPC ), Lycodon butleri (UKMDPC ), Rhabdophis chrysargos (UKMDPC ), Cryptelytrops cf. venustus (UKMDPC ), and Parias hageni (UKMDPC ).
